Will the vaccine protect me?

The COVID-19 vaccination will reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease.

It may take a few weeks for your body to build up some protection from the vaccine.

Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective – some people may still get COVID-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should be less severe.

The UK vaccination programme has been very successful with tens of millions of people vaccinated and many thousands of lives already saved.
